British Columbia. ^ :OCT.  7    1910. '  No. 22  Telephone Monopoly  How It Browbeats Its Subscribers���������A Veritable Blackmail.  The following letter, from a correspondent of this journal and  a subscriber of the B. C. Telephone Company, and one of the best  known business men of the eity, is a most -convincing illustration of  the odious methods in vogue with the company in its dealings with  the public. It is clear that the company will, when possible, impose  most absurd conditions upon such subscribers as may be easily  hoaxed, but they invariably "crawl down"'.-when an independent  and aggressive business man "'calls their bluff."  The following letter speaks for itself and is worthy of consideration: ,,, . .-.... . n    .   '  September 28; 1910.  Editor Western Call,  Vancouver, B. C.' ������   ,   '. ���������  .<    Dear Sir,���������With  vour kind permission, I would like to publish a 'few  facts concerning treatment the British Columbia Telephone,Co. extend subscribers. -7 7. .'-���������..������. - 7  .7    '<  -,-   \\Xk  It should be an .opportune time to present this statement, as the Telephone Co. are apparently using every effort possible-to secure >n even  greater "cinch" on Vancouver, if such is possible.  Some two yearB ago, thti writer and a neighbor applied to the Company  toi- hoiwe telephones on twelfth avenue east (on the Marine Driveway) and  deposited with the Company the usual $10 exacted by them. In a few days  we received notice that the services could not be installed unless we paid  them one year's rentals In advance and also construction fees of $35 each.  We offered to pay the year's rentals in advance, but could not see why a  subscriber should be called on to pay construction fees inside the city of  Vancouver and more especially on such a thoroughfare as Twelfth avenue.  Needless to my, we refused and requested that our applications be cancelled and the deposit returned.  8hortly after, the Company offered to give the service on the usual  basis, but not until they found their bluff would not work.  Then again in February, 1910, my office telephone was out of order and  was reported to the Trouble Department repeatedly and no satisfaction  could be obtained, and an appeal was then made to th,e manager, who informed me that the cable in the lane was burned out and the service could  not be continued until this cable was repaired. The telephone was out of  commission about three weeks, for which I put ln a written claim tor $2.00,  Twit with assurance from the manager that "he would hold out no hope or the  claim being allowed," and he stated further that "if the Company paid all  such claims, how would they pay DIVIDEND8!" '  The Company have since placed the account ($2.00) with a collecting  agency to force payment, as I-had' deducted the claim from the following  months' tolls.  I am very much pleased to see'that one paper in Vancouver Imb the  courage to fearlessly oppose such a company of Extortionists..  Thanking you for the space, I anv    " .. * Tours faithfully, ....  F. M. BRITTON.  WL  Wmt wmJUAwnsAowm-  It is decidedly refreshing to note how utterly unselfish is Mr.  Con Jones, the financial manager of the Vancouver lacrosse team,  and the erstwhile Australian sport promoter.  We are told, in a two-column free advertising news item report  of a dinner at the Hotel Vancouver, as given in the local press, that  "Mr. Jones raised a hearty and encouraging cheer when he stated  that it was his intention to use every means in his power to give  Vancouver a cup-winning team next season"; also "Manager Jones,  who financed the club, is shy just $764.43 on the season's operations."  What magnanimity! What a superlative example of genuine selff  sacrifice this is! But that is not all. We must add to this loss the  fact "that Mr. Jones dropped a couple of thousand dollars on the  previous saeson." The enthusiastic sporting editor then continues:  ''It is a sterling tribute to his sportsmanship that he is still deter-  "tnined to try for the cup." Let these great and potent facts sink  deep into the memory of an ungrateful public, that in spite of a  toss of about $3,000, this patriotic soul is determined to land that cup  for Vancouver.  How his old Australian friends will swell with pride when they  hear of the noble self-sacrifice of their acquaintance of former years.  We would heartily recommend that if Mr. Con Jones is able to land  that cup next year that hejake his team and tour Australia, landing firsts  national game is like when handled by such an adroit expert as Mr.  Jones. We are sure that his reception would be a warm one, and  the7 success of the venture assured because of Mr. Jones' intimate  acquaintance with sport promotion in Australia. Financially it  would undoubtedly be a success, at least for some.  The sporting editor of the World continues: "Mr. Jones received criticism from some quarters aud from some men who were  too narrow-minded to understand the situation in its true light."  Let these "narrow-minded critics" cease their Useless and unkind  \ reflections and be satisfied with the knowledge that Mr. Jones has  lost money on lacrosse, that he has succeeded only in getting in return more free advertising than any other person, always excepting  John Arthur Johnson, Jim Jeffries and Teddy Roosevelt, and that  the National Sports Club, of which he is the proud proprietor, receives its patronage from the young men of the community, and that  Mr. Jones is the respected adviser of all local hospital and philanthropic boards, the W. C. T. U., the Provincial Government and the  ['Children's Aid Society, etc.  And,further, in order to utterly silence any remaining obstreperous critic, permit us to say that Mr. Jones came here from Australia  fa few years ago with only moderate means, he now ranks amongst  the elite of the city, and is credited with considerable wealth (as is  [evidenced by his generous donations to various public charities, including his favorite political party); and this splendid social and  financial success has been achieved in spite of the fact that he has  been engaged in the great benevolent avocation of "professional  isport promoter."  A GOOD FLAG TO KEEP.  (Collier's Weekly.)'  A popular motto nowadays for set pieces and electric signs is  One Flag, One Empire, One King. This does not quite suit Henri  Bourassa, who would like a larger choice in flags. He is not satisfied with the Union Jack, under which he enjoys his liberties aud  'privileges. Some confusion exists as to what he really prefers���������the  fleur-de-lis of the Bourbons, the tricolor of the republicans, the eagles  and bees pf Napoleon or the drapeau de Carillon. It may be that  none of these is up to his mark, and that a special flag will have to  be designed for him by the Heralds' College, with a Bourassa rampant in the upper canton and an Armed Lavergne on the flap to  swing which way he pleases. Of course, Bourassa is not the only  'one who talks flags. There are people who object to the "Red  LDuster," the flag which has braved the battle and the Canadian  roreeze for forty-three years, ever since Confederation. They say it  ���������is a commercial'flag, and beneath the dignity of the new Canadian  navy. Well, perhaps. But in all these flag discussions do not let  us get far away from the flag that is the pride of the ocean and an  object of respect and affection to four hundred million people of all  colors and creeds.   Keep both hands on the Union Jack.  Coquitlam Hotel Condkfctetf by W.  Routity. ;  Among tbe varioas towns along J Coquitlam Hardware Co. is a flour-  the line of the C. P.

(Continued on page 2)  False Creek  _     v  Now that the problem of the disposition of the bed of False  Creek is again before ns for consideration.it might be well to enquire  into the relative position of the city and the G. N. railway.  There are varied aud copious opinions being gratuitously offered regarding the action of the Provincial Government in refusing  its approval of the city's plans (which, by the way, were really the  G. N. railway's plans,-not the city's)( but-a-criticaLanalysis.-.oilthe_  whole situation will convince any impartial person that the root  cause of this wave of indignation, as expressed by many worthy  citizens, is not that they are convinced of any injustice on the part  of the government, but that a pet scheme had been thwarted, which,  with child-like impetuosity, they had insisted upon carrying' out,  irrespective of its future effect or immediate legality.  Now it-is only reasonable to concede that-this strong desire to  carry but the scheme of development, as outlined by the Great Northern, was really caused by a conviction that unless this particular  scheme was adopted that the creek would remain an unsightly mud-  hole for an indefinite time; .  There is, however, one point which has-been generally overlooked by trie public, viz.,, that no sincere attempthas ever been made  to utilize False Creek as a publicly owned enterprise. ,It is true that  a resolution was introduced; to* council early-.this year to the effect  that the city develop the scheme in the public interest and that  not one *oot be alienated, but the mover had>the exquisite pleasure  o.' being the only one to vote for the resolution. The rest of the  council octermiued. in their wisdom that it was more in the interests  of the public to give to the Great Northern.130 acres than to burden  the administration with an undertaking which would require the ex-  pendture of a great sum of money and of "aldermanie grey matter," deeming the effort too great for the meagre gratitude of a  fickle public. This does not, however, do away with the significance  of the suggestion. When the property was granted to the city it  was especially stipulated that it should not be alienated, but used  for the public good, and it is no compliment to Vancouver that no  scheme of publie development has ever been attempted. We are now  all thoroughly convinced of the almost incalculable, value of this  property, yet, strange to say, in the minds of members of our council  it was not thought to be of sufficient value to be security for the  cost of development.   '    ,  The present stay in proceedings might almost be viewed' as a  "providential opportunity" given us in which to carefully scrutinize  the situation and ask ourselves if we are really justified in. giving  away 130 acres in the very heart of our city to a railway company.  For what? For nothing. Again, we might ask: Is it too late to  retrace our steps?   And, What is the position of the G. N. railway?  In consideration of the first question it is well to remember that  when False Creek was granted to the city it was considered to be  of very little value, and the land surrounding it was also looked  upon as less valuable because of its proximity to the creek. During  the interim, however, its value has been partially appreciated, but  not to such au extent that an immediate advantage was not able to  overshadow its possible future value, both in the eyes of the electorate and of the majority of the council; in fact, so strong was this  desire for some simple immediate development, at whatever cost to  future generations, that the council never seemed to consider the  (Continued cm page 4)  Misleading Statement  This journal is willing to publish the statements of any responsible organization, providing they are within reason and authenticated with the signature of a responsible person, but we will not lend  our column for the publication of subtle, misleading information,  although it may be clothed in language which, at first glance, would  appear to the uninitiated as in perfect accord with the best interest  of the public. '���������/...'.  We are continually receiving from a certain source unsigned,-  typewritten articles, which purport to be in the interests of temperance. The last epistle from this anonymous correspondent expresses great alarm at the increase in the consumption of liquor  in the United States; quoting statistical returns from the Inland  Revenue Department in support of the statement, then proceeds to  point out that this is in spite of the fact that many states are going  "dry," and closes with a plaintive interrpgaiou, "Does prohibiion  prohibit, or are we on the wrong; track?" We answer our mysterious friend: Yes, you certainly are on the wrong track In the first  place you are a hypocrite. You are not the friend of temperance,  you are simply the paid tool of the License Victuaiers Association.  In the second place your statements are false and misleading.  The figures which are quoted regarding counmption are really ^  the total withdrawals from bond of spirits and of beer upon which  the revenue tax has been paid. There is a vast difference in the  two and the License Victuallers know this perfectly well. The fact  is that in these figures, which are so assiduously circulated, are included the amounts which are being exported and if we are to  bilievft tbe advertisements of Sehlitz's beer, this firm alone ia exporting many trainloads each week, in fact, whole ships cargoes  are made up of the products of this one firm and is carried to all  parts of the. world. There.,are hundredsof firms hi America which  manufacture and export vast quantities of beer, wines and liquors.  This all comes under the figures of the Revenue Department.  Ihe following is a very interesting comparison wb;ch we recommend to our License Victualer friend and suggest that they might i  be included in lys next epistle:  Here are the figures for the years 1967. 1908, 1909 and 1910, ,  these figures covering Withdrawals of distilled spirits from bond ' -  and beer on which revenue tax was paid: ; V  Gallons.     ��������� _,��������� K  t^ *   ' ;  19wi    .^   A,Ul.f,b9x,Hx  1908  2,006,233,408  1909 \  1,935,544,113  1910..... :.  2,046,181,943  AccordingHo the circular of. the,Ucense.VictuaUrsy these ftfurea  show eonelUshrely that :Loe*l Optiou7 fx*rhltroa a^ Tempataoee  Agitation only increase drinking* 'The fact is that dealer* every- "  where have been by mutual arrangement making heavy withdrawals)  from bond of spirits, and these dealers are carrying heavy stocks  of liquors and beer which has hot been consumed, so as to purposely  inflate the figures of the Inland Revenue Department, and in addition to this is the increasing export trade.  But here are some more figures which show, that even taking  the statements of the Victuaiers as true (which they are not), a decided decrease: Per capita.  jyo" ������������������������������ .-������������������'������������������������������������������������������** ��������� au.uIs  .f *J\J*J       .   .   .   m   ���������������������������   ���������������������������������������������   ������������������������������������������������������*���������   ������������������������������������       fl+������ww  ^4-tTj.vJ        ��������� '"���������,���������'���������   ���������   ���������.���������   ���������   ���������   ���������   ���������   ���������-.���������������������������   ���������������������������������������������������������������   ��������� -���������       mm4-M~.\������r^  Thus it will be observed that, according to these returns, there  has been a very decided reduction in consumption without making  any additional'.allowance, for. increased exports or withdrawals.  To bring the per capita of 1910 up to 1907 it would require a  total of 180,000,000 gallons, which is a very considerable amount.  Then again, previous to 1907, there was an annual increase of  96.000,000 gallons. This has been stopped entirely, thus making a  total loss or reduction in the last three years of 375,000,000 gallons.  No wonder the License Victuaiers are using every known device to  stop the" leakage. ~ "   :������������������- - -    -  Another favorite strajfcagem of the trade is to insert in the press  of the country little stories, in the form of news items, whereby  prominent men are alleged to have supported the establishment of  saloons, etc., under certain picturesque conditions. Not long since  there appeared in the local press a story that the Bishop of Manchester. England, had publicly expressed his approval of a certain saloon  in his district and quoted him as saying if more such were inaugurated it would lessen drunkenness, and then followed an attractive  description of the place. We cut the article out and forwarded it  to the Bishop for his confirmation, aud iu reply received his absoluted  repudiation of the whole article. '  We are not crauks. but we do utterly despise those'who seek,  to gain a purely monetary advantage by the circulation-of false and  misleading statements.  BRITISH PREFERENCE.  (Standard of Empire.)  Elsewhere we print an account of an experiment which proves  beyond* doubt the Standard of Empire's contention that there exists  in plenty in the towns of.Great Britain excellent emigration material.  Two unemployed men were chosen at random from among the homeless unfortunates on the Thames Embankment, and given work on  a farm. It took them some little time to shake off the evil effects  of semi-starvation, exposure, and the heart-breaking search for work,  but today, after six months' hard work on the farm, they are thoroughly competent farm hands. They have regained their self-respect  and interests in life, and have been chosen by Sir Thomas Robinson,  the Agent-General for Queensland, to go out to.that State as assisted  emigrants. With/reasonable good fortune, backed by stern application to work, then* is not the slightest reason why these men should *  not be comfortably placed freehold farmers within five years, and  possibly rich men before they reach middle age. Yet neither of them  had any experience of farm work before they were rescued from the  terrors of unemployment six months ago. Nothing more is needed'  to dispel the tradition that only those who have been reared on the  land can become successful farmers. What has been done for these  two men in question could assuredly be done in the case of thousands  of'others���������men who. for some reason or other, have failed to make  good in this the land of their birth, but for whom there are chances  in plenty in the Oversea States. It was an important feature of tliis  ease that the element of charity was not allowed to enter. The men  were put.to work on an ordinary farm and paid a wage���������a very  small one, it is true-^-for their services. There" was no official atmosphere about them, and those with whom they associated were  ordinary agricultural laborers, not beginners like themselves, trying  to retrieve lost fortunes. At practically no cost whatever two wrecks  have been prevented and two citizens given to a young and prosperous State. Why should not the two be two thousand or twenty  thousand?  ���������* 'Hi  > >'*������l  ' -*$|  '     ������P������I  .ruffl  wl  -^1 THE WESTERN CALL. VANCOUVER. BRITI8H COLUMBIA.

(From Literary Digest.)       ;  If the power of the commander of  a transatlantic greyhound is great his  i responsibilities to his owners-and to  l humanity are nd less so. * If he loses  his ship through.the slightest fault of  hisown he loses his career if, haply,  he survives the disaster.  -Not. many  do.   Captains subscribe to a code unwritten, but not less inexorable, that  theyshall die with their ships, if passengers are aboard when it goes down.  The commander of La Bourgoghe was  1 last seen on the bridge, his hand or  the whistlecord, as the great liner took   i the long dive.    Captain Von Goessel  ������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������<���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������<���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������<���������������������������>���������>��������������������������� !������*'*?*.Elbe' ���������������t genial and skUful of  ���������    (captains,  stood  on  the   bridge   with  ' arms folded calmly waiting for the  waters to engulf bim. Captain Griffith  of the Mohegan waited on the bridge,  while his vessel sank beneath his feet.  Captain Luce of the Arctic died at his  post. There have been recent instances of captains, having piled their  ships up on rocks or shoals, going  to their cabins and ending their lives.  They knew it was either that or a_  life of retirement on shore. Not all  have chosen to accept that alternative  which lay within their own hands."  !Tou may find them brooding the. years  away In little rose-covered cottages in  Hamburg, Bremen, Liverpool,, Glasgow, or. some Long.Island village���������  each a victim of one overshadowing  mistake which set the "record of yeara  at naught, and offset all the bravery  and.skill and devotion to duty that in  them lay.  In fact, when one considers the rigid  responsibilities of a captain there'can  be but wonder that he is such a wholesome and pleasant person, and .such  good company at all times when the:  .navigation of the ship does not demand his close attention.  One foggy morning in the spring of  1908 the Kronprinz Wilhelm was lying  off Robin's Reef, waiting for the, mist  banks to rise before proceeding to her  pier. Many of the passengers who had  succumbed to Captain Nierich's genial  and magnetic personality had gone forward under the bridge for a last word  with their commander. The Captain  could not but see them, but there was  nothing to indicate that he did.' .They  knew better than to obtrude them,  selves upon the bluff skipper's attention. Evidently he had other things  to think of. The passengers did not  quite understand., It was true there  Was fog, but the liner was in the bay;  what possible , harm could 7 come?  While they would hate to think.it of  the Captain, vthere was little doubt  that this was a pose.  . Suddenly, as they stood there, the  telephone on the bridge: rang. Cap;  tain Nierich answered, and then in an  instant dropped the receiver and  sprung to the* afteraction of the  bridge. There came a crash astern,  and the sharp cutwater of the Crown  of Castile, blundering through the fog,  bit into the German liner's stern. By  this time the captain had pulled up a  long brass rod. This rod, when pulled  as high as it would go, began to descend, while great gongs rang throughout^ the immense. .hu.lL.__ In^swenjsec-,  onds the rod had sunk into its original  position, and the gongs���������warning  every one out of the way of the bulkhead doors���������had ceased. .Captain  Nierich turned to a lever, and gave  it a mighty pull. Instantly the ship  reverberated with the noise of twenty  steel doors flying shut, with a force  that would have cut logs in two. The  hull prcatically was hermeticallly  sealed. Even had the bow of the  wandering tramp penetrated below the  water-line, the Kronprinz would have  remained afloat. As it was the hole  was punched above ihe water, and no  compartment filled.  Proximity tp port had not found Captain Nierich napping. He maintained  as rigid attention to all details looking  toward the safety of the ship.In New  York bay as he would have in tnid-sea.  And when the test came���������the first real  test, by the way, of the automatic bulkhead-closing system���������he was ready for  It. By actual time, the Kronprinz was.  watertight within twenty seconds after  the collission.  Some captains are frequently called  upon to show gallantry or resourcefulness in situations bordering upon the  hazardous; others pursue a peaceful  and uneventful course over smiling  seas, so to speak, year in and year out.  Capt. Charles Polack of the Kaiser  Wilhelm der Grosse, for example, could  wear a double row of medals for  bravery across his ample chest Once,  in the fall of 1907, when his vessel was  speeding for Bremen, with cabins well  filled, the steamship was shaken by  some shock, and then slewed off at a  tangent. A derelict had carried away  the rudder. The steamship was then  400 miles from Halifax. Some of the  passengers, whose nerves had not  withstood the accident, wanted the  Captain to make for that port. But  there were mails aboard, and several  hundred passengers were on this vessel, because she was swift; they had  taken passage "tin her because they  wanted to reach Europe in the shortest possible time. So Polack decided  to finish the trip, rudder or no rudder,  by. steering with his propellers. He  did this in four and" a half days, bringing the vessel in port only a few hours  late; In all this time Captain Polack  never left the bridge, rlbur after hour!  hei was at the signal telegraph, calling for a little extra pow������r on-' the  starboard propeller, or bn7the port  screw, as the case might be; backing  with one, going astern with the other.  Thus the course -was maintained and  the journey completed without accident. When the Captain finally went  from the bridge to his cabin, his feet  jvere so swol'en that they were obliged  tdKcut his shoes off." 7  ; .The majority of the achievements of  captains are not likely to become  known, to the public, both because of  the Captain's modesty and a policy  of silence. The passengers are usually  quite unaware of, the events of the  night as they see the skipper smiling  ind urbane, as he passes along Ihe  deck. 7. , 77     .".7  Two or three years ago the Kaiser  Wilhelm II. ran into a heavy, fog on  approaching the English Channel. The  dreaded Scillys were somewhere at  hand, but they were not to-be-seen.  But they were passed and Captain  Cueppers strained his ear for the Lizard fog-signal. Finally Cueppers sent  out a wireless inquiry to the Lizard,  asking the operator if he had heard  the Kaiser's fog whistle. Answer came  back that it had been heard about  three miles to the southward. The  captain signaled back that in order to  be certain he would blow his fog-  whistle three times. He waited one  minute and then the whistle-blasts  were sounded.  ���������  "The sounds come directly abeam of  this station," answered the operator.  Captain Cueppers felt that he knew  his position now to a certainty, and  groped his way toward the Eddystone.  Eventually the vessel, which had passengers to land at Plymouth, was anchored off that port. The passengers  boarded the tender, and the Kaiser  proceeded to Bremen. The commander; never got the faintest glimpse of  piymouth. There is nothing heroic in  this, but eminent skill as a navigator  is: plainly read in this incident. -  TBESON00F  %M?Mititts  There' is.a line stirring .poem by  Will Ogilviehn the current number of  the Spectator.- It is 7 called - 'The  Plough/^and tells of the part plar-ed  in the settlement and civilization of  the world .'*-r the implement which,  from time immorial, has played its  leading part at the base of all productive industry.

The  terrible statistics, gathered from medical authoritative sources with regard  to the awful ravages of these two crying evils, gave the audience serious  'truths to consider for many a Ion?  day. This versatile progressive thinker might be termed a Medical Evan -  gellst (not the goody-goody sort). He  certainly has the courage of his con-  victions, and Is rendering invaluable  service to the science of Eugenics and  the cause of Moral Reform.

Her next move was   to  organize a campaign for the procuring of humane laws with   regard   to  child ��������� labour, compulsory   education;  factory inspection, etc., and- ultimately succeeded in getting eight   of   the  ten bills passed   in   which   she   was  deeply interested.

It is impossible to adequately express "one's indignation at the  outrage perpetrated at Los Angeles last; week  which   resulted in-  wrecking the "Times" publishing plant and in the loss of a score  of lives, nor can we find language strong enough to express Our utter  loathing of those guilty of the felonoiis deed.  That some malignant persons did actually commit the crime;.,  seems to be demonstrated beyond a doubt, but as to who it was, and 7  what were the causes which led up to so dastardly a deed, is a  matter upon which no rash conclusion should be drawn.   The popular tendency is to lay it at the door of the unions of Los Angeles.. .  This we submit is eminently unjust in absence of positive proof. 7  The matter is so serious that no effort or expense should be spared.,  to probe it to the very bottom. - 7  . It is a well-known fact that the "Times'* ami the manufacturers have been waging a bitter war against the unions, and immediately it became known that an outrage had been committed the cry )  went'forth that the unions had done it.. This charge has been taken  tip by the enemies of unionism throughout the length and breadth  of tlie land, and many impartial and neutral parties have been  prejudiced against the unions as "a result.    '.���������*..  We repeat, that until such time as the matter has been thorough-.,  ly probedY and it has been positively proven that the unions were  officially connected with the act, judgment should be reserved.   It  is not sufficient to show, even, that the perpetrators were men be- <  longing to a union, because no one denies1 that many individual union  men are bad, but that is no criterion that all union men are bad.  According to reports in the press, the war which has been  waging between the Manufacturers' Association and its champion,  the "Times," and union labor in Los Angeles, has .been characterized by - much bitterness and vituperation on both sides. The  "Times" has designated certain labor leaders as murderers, corpse  defacers, assaulters, etc; there is small excuse for the use of such  epithets in the discussion of an economic question. Again, this same  association has sworn to abolish unionism. This position is little .^  short of insane. Any rational man will admit that it is much easier  to deal with a committee representing a large number of common  interests than it is to deal with each individual member, and unionism, under proper control, is a great benefaetor. It is also a matter  worthy of note that the unions are ready and ,anxious to have a  publie system of arbitration inaugurated, but on the other hand the  average employers' association arrogate to themselves the sole right  to judge of the merits or demerits of the ease.  Now, it is reasonable to assume that there is bound to arise  problems-and questions between employer and employee under.our  present systems of industrial development, and wha,t saner way is  there to deal with those problems than b.v arbitration? We simply  draw attention-to these facts because of ,the evident effort on the  part of interested parties to make a great deal of capital out of the  unfortunate occurrence at Los������ Angeles.  A catastrophe of this kind should make all wise men think, and  think hard of the Causes which may have led up to the outrage.  Whoever, committed the infamous act, or whoever may have con-  ' nived at it. must have beehsembittered to the point of desperation,7  and a condition of society which is productive of such feelings ia  anything but harmonious and warrants the most, careful study as to: i  ways in which it ean be remedied. ;     -      :7  FALSE CREEK   (Continued)  future as worthy of even passing attention. But this does not release us from the solemn obligation of preserving for posterity some  of the rich natural advantages, which are theirs as much as they are  ours, and we shall be remiss in our duty if we allow them to be  dissipated, even though it may be to the personal advantage of some  to do so. ': ���������-.���������_..   "77 -���������  liipthe next place* what is the position of the G. N. Railway t,|  They do not seem to be worrying much.   In fact, it is well to note  they have been supremely indifferent as to the fate of the city's?!  application.   Why?   Simply because they have an alternative course;  in case the present scheme fails.   It is altogether probable that they;  would prefer it did fail, as it would release them from tlie existing^]  agreement with the city, which, while it is entirely abortive as far  88;i!eii^Tah������e is concerned, yfet it carries a moral obligation, which'  may be ignored, but at times might be troublesome, and the railway*!  usually seek the course of least resistance as a matter of policy.  The Great Northern Railway Company have never filed plana]  in a formal manner under the Railway Act, and therefore are in  the position of a private owner of foreshore, on False Creek.   UpJ  to the present they have been subject to expropriation by the citj  tinder powers given in the False Creek Foreshore Act, and conse-1  quently found it convenient to enter into an agreement with the city!  until such times as this Act should expire, vi?., October 31st.   After!  that date the railway company will be more or less independent ofj  the eity and will then be in a position to file the usual plans showj  ing lands required for terminal facilities, and will claim the right  to acquire, under the Railway Act, the very land they have beei  dickering withJhe city for, and further will be able to produce  evidence of the justice"of theiF^VU?mands "this self-sam^  with the city, supported by an overwhelming vote of the people.   Ii  the face of this convincing evidence the city will have considerable  difficulty in opposing their claims; in fact; it is doubtful if the com  cil,as at present constituted, would offer any objection to anything  the Great Northern might demand.  A very strong argument which would be urged by the railwajj  in support of its claims would be that it owned the foreshore an<j  therefore had a right to the abutting tide flats. And in response  the city's claims to the title of the tide flats, they would be able  point to the undeniable fact that the eity had on no occasion eyei  attempted to develop their holdings, and were only standing in thi  way of legitimate enterprises. It is altogether probable that undei  such ^conditions the railwav company would thus be enabled to se]  cure, iree. from any troublesome verbal promises, all the land if  might want.  The diplomatic skill of the railway is well illustrated in its aj  parent anxwty to secure the passing of the by-law; this was part  the scheme; they thus obtained confirmation beforehand of thi  amount of land they would require.   Another very significant fac  is that the railway ieft a few lots which they refused to buy at thi  head of the creek, in spite of the fact that they agreed with the couq  cil to extinguish all riparian rights, except some lying near the brid|  which tlie city agreed to assume.   This clause was so changed i\  the printed copy of the by-law as to read that the "company woulj  be at liberty to defend action, etc.." and it was largely due to tin  vigorous opposition of these owners that the Provincial Governmen]  were induced to make such fine legal investigations, resulting in  refusal of the plans.   It would appear to a careful observer that  railway purposely allowed these lots to remain and deliberately t\  frained from fl'ai're. with them in order to encompass the defeat  the city's application.  As to the possibility of the city being able to fnistrate thef  schemes or to successfully retrace its steps it is difficult to sts  One thing seems to be of paramount importance, and that is,  city should spare no effort to secure again, through the ProvinciJ  Government, the position which it has forfeited by allowing the Fa  Creek Foreshore Act to lapse.   We should profit by our unpleas  experience of this past year and proceed forthwith   to outline  scheme for tbe development of False Creek in the interests of  public.  Such a scheme should incorporate a just and equitable arrang  ment to be submitted to the railway company which is interest^  But we should also oppose, unflinchingly, any effort on the part  the railway company to absorb any portion of this splendid herita  which we have valued so slightly.  The great difficulty we are experiencing in getting-the railwj  company to keep its agreement regarding bridges over the big  is sufficient to demonstrate to us that they regard their promia  as something to be observed only when convenient to do so. and qu\  justifies the city in looking after its own interests, and also iV ���������  R, BRITISH COLUMBIA.

The exhibition rules require 600  boxes for a car, hence there will be  a grand total of 12,600 boxes on display. One box of apples is approximately 20 Inches long. If all of these  boxes of apples were placed end to  end, and a little boy told that he  could have the last box In the row if  he would go after it, he would have  to walk 47% wiles to get it.  There are 36 to 225 -apples in a box  according to size and the manner in  which they are packed. The average  would therefore be about 130 appleB  to each box, or a total of 1.638,000 apples in tbe entire show. These apples  will average about two and one-quarter inches in diameter, and if, tbey  were placed in a single row it would  be 698 miles long. If a little boy  should start to walk to the end of the  row, and walk seven and one-hnlf miles  a day, it would require three months  and three days to accomplish the  feat.  The owners of these apples will receive $25,000 in prizes, or nearly two  dollars per box.

This protective tariff enables  the great landed proprietors to sell  at exhorbitant prices, while it discourages the raising of cattle among  neighboring ��������� nations, which one supplied German and Austrian markets.

The monopoly of the land  and the greed of the great agarian  classes are kindling smoldering fires  of fierce hatred and rebellion.

Nor do we shed any  sentimental tears over the stage drivers and liverymen whose occupation  ���������have long since been supplanted by  steam or electricity.

"You will destroy individuality of  effort," cry the anti-Socialists. "You  will displace workers; you will disturb trade."

JFor "thirty years the; Republicans  have governed MaMihe, and - in the  elections of last week it was confident,  ly anticipated that the State would  maintain its traditions, and elect a Republican governor. But the unexpected happened, and Fred M. Plaisteil  was elected- governor by a larger majority than that which two years ago  placed Bert M. Fernald in the governor's chair'; TThe election was one of  the quietest for ypar^'and the total  vote was^ about an average one for ah  bit year. The issues were well under*  . 8t6odr and" it ia said" that most of' the  speakers confined themselves To state  matters, and scarcely mentioned national issues. But tie- national leaders were very much inclined to; see  more than local significance,in Maine's  pronouncement.    The Democrats .hail  wult was a net gain to the State of  ������114,000. The gross earnings of all dais of the present year aggravate the  Indian railways amounted to 4706 j situation under the prevailing dearth  lakhs of rupees, with net earnings of land scarcity   and   the    condition   of  2067 lakhs of rupees, showing a, return  of .4.81 per cent. The'total number of  passengers carried was 329,000,000.  The average rate charged to passengers was ujst over a fifth of a penny  per mile. Nearly 70,000,000 tons of  goods were carried, a decrease of 1,-  500,000 tons.  INTERNATION   RELATIONS.  A slight inclination to weave international relations is observable. An  amalgamation of five rubber concerns  involved three companies in the United States and one in Canada. The International Cotton Mills Corporation,  of New York State, and capitalized at  $20,000,000 is believed to have acquired or proposes to acquire two or more  Canadan cotton mills. The occasional visits of prominent officials of the  United States Rubber Company to  Montreal has led some to believe that  a gigantic international rubber trust  may one day be arranged to include  the leading rubber companies of Canada and the United States.  Friendly. relations are also thought  to exist between the largest Canadian and United States.. asbestos^cor-  porations. While it may be long before such international companies are  arranged, the trend of interested opinion does not seem to be antagonistic  to such- consolidations.

G. T. P. MAKES PROGRESS IN THE  EAST.  The Transcontinental railway from  Levis to Moncton will be open for traffic in the early spring of next year.  The completion of this section will  put into operation one of the most important links of the whole line. Arrangements are already being made in  a preliminary way for car ferries  across the St. .Lawrence pending the  construction of the Quebec bridge.  From Quebec to a point 195 miles west  the line is about completed now, but  from the latter point to Lake Superior  junction, it will not oe done for two  years. The section from Lake Superior junction to Winnipeg will be ready  for regular operation this autumn.  .According to a well-defined report,  the Canadian Pacific Railway is to  build a new line from Smith's Falls  to Toronto, via Belleville and the Lake  Shore, paralleling the Grand Trunk  from Belleville to Toronto. Mr. Mc-  Nicoll, general manager of the road,  who is now in Toronto, admits that  the company is looking up a route for  a new line between Smith's Falls and  Toronto. '  In an interview Mr. McNicoll intimates that the Canadian Pacific  means shortly to spend a great deal  of money upon the construction in  Toronto of extensive terminal facilities. Without being specific, he seems  to indicate that the company will build  in the north end of the city instead  of on the water front.  panies here are interested in the sale  of particular goods a'iflft are at the  same time enj"bying. reciprocal relations with similar companies across  the international boundary, will create  or enlarge a market which it will re-  \>ay those concerned to maintain. Easily might a momentous trade factor  thus be constituted, and one whicn  would- operate to some extent against  the growth of trade with Great Britain  France, Germany and other countries.
